An experienced deer hunter shows you how to set up and use a tree stand for deer hunting in this free video.
The secret to any successful deer hunt is finding the ideal location to place your tree stand. Here I have a portable tree stand that I use. It has a foot climber and a section that I sit in. Disassembling the parts and put in the upper section of the tree first, adjusting for a snug fit. Next I will be putting on the lower section, attaching the straps to hold the two pieces together as I climb the tree. Now I will proceed to get in the tree lounge and climb the tree. Simple, pulling up, pushing up with my feet using the climber to climb to the height that I want for the optimum viewing of the area that I am hunting in. Now after I have got the rifle in this stand with me safely I proceed to glass the area to see if there are any deer in the area. After the hunt I am using the safety line that is attached to lower my rifle down to the ground. Next I will proceed to descend the tree trunk down to the ground the end of a fulfilling hunt for the day.
